Pros: When it works it works well

Cons: Auger jams....more auger jams...Auger fires, ignighter failures

Maybe I got a lemon, but this grill has been nothing but trouble science I bought it. I have had too many auger jams/fires to count.  Tim walked me through reprogramming my controller which helped some.  I sent my controller back to him for a re-flash which appears to not have improved anything.  I followed all the tips about stepping down the temps during shut down.  Today a replace my igniter...again.

 

This grill has let me down on so many occasions I lost count.  I simply cannot count on this smoker to work!

 

Like I said, maybe I got a lemon, but for the price of this grill I should not have near the problems! I would never purchase another Blaz'n grill.

Thanks for the heads up. I used to think I wanted a pellet smoker, until I got the chance to use my brother in laws. I just don't like the flavor you get with the pellets. Maybe it is the chemical used to bind the sawdust into pellet form. I'm sticking to wood for now.
I have had my gridiron for almost 3 years and love it! I kid you not; I probably have closet to 2K pounds of pellets through it. Never had a auger jam or a fire. Had a small issue with the computer. Told Tim and he sent me a new one. After three years just had a small issue with the igniter. Putting a new one in when I get it in the mail. Customer service has been top notch! I'm trying to get my wife to let me buy a second one!
